CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.– Virginia wide receiver Joe Reed has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Specialist of the Week for games played through Nov. 11. This is the second weekly accolade for Reed in his career and first of the season.
With Virginia leading visiting Liberty 24-17 on Saturday, Reed (Charlotte Court House, Va.)returned the opening kickoff of the second half 90 yards for a TD, helping spur the Cavaliers to an eventual 45-24 win. Reed finished the game with 193 kickoff return yards, the fifth-best single-game total by an FBS player this season. The kickoff return for a score was the third in Reed’s career, tying for seventh among active FBS players and also setting a UVA record.
